We love the easygoing desert vibe of this MCM-inspired living room. The succulents provide the color while the minimalist color scheme allows texture and shape to take center stage.

The undeniable centerpiece of this living room are the colorful wall panels reminiscent of Mondrian painting. It creates a memorable and jazzy accent wall. Layer in the geometric rug and gondola shaped sofa, and we’re wondering when we can move in!
